Las aventuras del capitán Hatteras-El desierto de hielo
Cotton arrived in India as a cornet without purchase in the 22nd Light Dragoons, becoming lieutenant in On the disbandment of the regiment he was placed on half-pay but continued to serve in India as a-d-c to Major-General Hare at Bangalore. Subsequently he was appointed major in the 41st in Burma, later transferring to the 28th in New South Wales.
He returned to Bombay with his regiment in time to hear of the disasters in the Khyber Pass, but they were unable to take the field due to an outbreak of cholera. When the 28th was ordered home in Cotton effected an exchange with Colonel Pennefeather of the 22nd in order to remain in India. In he commanded a combined force raised in the aftermath of the murder of Colonel Mackesay at Peshawar, proceeding to the Kohat Pass and successfully suppressing the rising. In the same year he commanded the 22nd in a force under Boileau against the Boree Afridis and in commanded a force of 4, against the Mohmands.
Exchanging again in , this time to the 10th, he was commanding as brigadier in the Peshawar Valley at the time of the outbreak of the Mutiny. Presented with the opportunity to demonstrate his abilities at a higher level of command he rose to the occasion, forcefully disarming the native infantry, securing the passage of the Indus, and blowing several traitorous sepoys from cannons. Lord Lawrence described him as "the right man for the place. He became major-general in , colonel of the 10th in , lieutenant-general in , and succeeded Sir John Pennefeather as governor of Chelsea Hospital in two years before his death.
DNB describes him as an officer "whose knowledge of India was exceptionally great, and who possessed in a remarkable degree the confidence of his soldiers", commending the present work for its insight and Cotton for his efforts in pointing out abuses and "in every possible way [working] to ameliorate the condition of the British soldier in India.
His memoirs crustily crab at civilian officials who failed to give the army total military and political control of the frontier and denied the wisdom of his thinking.

Extremities chipped, some old tape. Addressed to the Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, this despatch precedes Bowers' official page report on the Sladen expedition to Yunnan. Bowers was an obvious choice to accompany the mission. A long term resident of Rangoon, he was a respected member of the Royal Naval Reserve and an independent merchant with extensive commercial connections in the region.
The expedition's official purpose was to establish "overland communication with Western China", namely to revive the Ambassador Route between Bhamo and Yunnan and secure British trade in China via their representatives in Burma.
Trade in the region had almost ceased largely due to the Panthay rebellion Its importance to England was evident from the size of the expedition, the party numbered over a hundred including servants and armed escorts. They were further accompanied by elephants laden with British made gifts for local rulers and potential allies. They returned in September the same year.
In addition to its commercial agenda, "the journey proved for the first time the navigability of the [Irrawaddy] river beyond Mandalay, and charts were drawn up by Captain Bowers who accompanied the expedition" Howgego. This does Bowers a disservice as his chart of the river was 50 foot long. Although the focus remains on trade in the region, additional details are included: The manufacture of salt is carried on here, this being a govt monopoly, it is sold by license; Opium, tea From daily intercourse with these Pantheys for six weeks, the impression left was that they were more of a warlike than a commercial people At present, in fact, it is nearly suspended.
